Brighton 1965. When the theatrical impressario Bert Billington is found dead, no-one suspects foul play. But when the post-mortem reveals poisoning, suspicion falls on his wife, eccentric ex-Music Hall star Verity Malone. Determined to prove her innocence, Verity calls in Private Investigator Emma Holmes, former detective and now wife of Police Superintendent Edgar Stephens. This is her first real case but luckily she has a lead. Her friend, actor Max Mephisto, is filming a remake of Dracula starring Bert's son Seth. But Max is playing his cards close to his chest. Emma must vie with the police - including her husband -to untangle the case. She's convinced the answer lies in Bert's dark past and in the glamorous, occasionally deadly, days of Music Hall. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more danger she find herself in...

Another enjoyable tale from Ms Griffiths. I didn't guess the perp so she's not lost her touch but I still prefere her Ruth Galloway series as it is so much easier to engage with the characters there.
